Atlanta – May 02 2018

Early Summer Kick-off Rooftop Party at Three Sheets

Hello everyone:

It’s that time again to meet at one of our favorite Atlanta Eurocircle venues for our monthly gathering. Please join us next Wednesday (May 2nd) at THREE SHEETS. The weather that day looks promising so we will meet on the rooftop patio where we will enjoy a full bar along with complimentary appetizers. Parking around the venue is free and plentiful so please invite all your friends since for some reason, Facebook no longer allows all members to receive these invitations.

This is a rain or shine event so I look forward to seeing everyone next week.

Salutations,
David

Austin – Apr 27 2018

Mixology Night at Academia with EuroCircle

Some have said  that Academia is pegged as “an Ivy League university of drinking,” and a “figurative faculty lounge for late, great literary icons such as Ernest Hemingway and Hunter S. Thompson.”  Russell Davis, the owner,  was a regular on Spike Network’s Bar Rescue 

The custom lighting has been designed by Cirque du Soleil’s technical and lighting director, “using varying colors and brightness to influence moods, trigger memories and evoke emotions”.

So what to expect :  high-ceilings, lots of wood, brick and iron surfaces, Academia is adorned with banners, seals and crests (the kind you might find at colleges). Chalk scrawled on the walls will nod to literary heroes like Hemingway.  What else… there are both lounge areas and long high-top tables with USB ports, for both work and play.

 Emma did some in person experiments and loved the cocktails. Join us to taste some – and celebrate Emma’s recovery from plane crash.  We are happy she is OK!
For tonight we have $5 Highballs and $6 Classic Cocktails from 5pm-8pm. Super great specials.

Oh yes, and we asked them to keep the music level LOWER from 6 pm to 8 pm for mingling.

OTHER EVENTS COMING UP:
April 25 – SACC (Swedes) Networking with Steve Harper (FREE)
May 12 – Eurovision Pary with the Swedes at Scandinavian Spaces
May 20 – the 6th Annual Internatonal Potluck
TRAVEL with Sherry to Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt (optional) in September 2018 – email Sherry at Philadelphia (at) eurocircle.com

Minneapolis – Ap 22 2018

Paris Chansons performing at the Dakota Jazz Club

Eurocircle will be there on the night of the 22nd  www.parischansons.com

Paris Chansons is Los Angeles’s premier French performing group.  Recently featured on the CBS/KCAL news, they are known for their original renditions of French favorites from Aznavour, Brel, Dassin, Piaf, Montand all the way to contemporary artists like Zaz.  Their exhilarating performances are punctuated by traditional jazz standards in addition to classics in Russian, Italian, and other languages.

Three multilingual singers bring an unparalleled diversity to their shows.  Julia Kantor, originally from Ukraine, lived and studied in France where she discovered in French music a soul connection that still imbues every performance.  She entrances from the stage with a sultry voice and dynamic presence.  Together with her husband, Jacob, a Russian-born singer/songwriter, they launched Paris Chansons.  Max Cohen grew up in Morocco, where he was steeped in French music, particularly the songs of Enrico Macias.  Max’s rich, velvety tone delivers beautifully nuanced renditions of his favorites, complete with a signature North African lilt.

Superb musicianship anchors the ensemble, effortlessly moving from jazzy improvisation, to slow-burning balladry, to blistering gypsy fervor.  All seasoned pros, the musicians are Endre Balogh on violin, Adam Cohen on upright bass, Jacob Kantor on guitar,  Jeff Lams on piano, and Sinclair Lott on drums.  Paris Chansons takes you an a journey without having to leave your seat (except, of course, to dance!).   They always deliver a spectacular celebration of French and International music that brings the world that much closer.
